Dr. Robert Craig Maccabee founded Advanced Footcare and Sportsmedicine over twenty years ago for one purpose- to give his patients what he feels is the most complete and technologically advanced treatment not only in sports related injuries but surgical care of the foot and ankle.

Dr. Maccabee remains humble and stays true to the values by which he founded his practice-compassion, personal attention, respect and sensitivity toward his patients. Dr. Maccabee is a double-board-certified foot and ankle specialist. He is board certified by the American Board of Podiatric Surgeons and the American Board of Podiatric Orthopedics and Primary Podiatric Medicine. I have a keen interest in cosmetic surgical training, continuing education and clinical experience. Part of my goals with Advanced Footcare and Sportsmedicine is to bring the Art and Science of the care of the foot and ankle into a relaxed atmosphere, where evaluation and treatment plans are discussed in non-technical terms in a way that patients can understand.

Dr. Maccabee has become known for his strong doctor-patient relationships, his sterling reputation and impeccable credentials. Dr. Maccabee has become recognized in the field of cosmetic foot and ankle surgery and reconstructive foot and ankle procedures and strive's for excellence in his practice everyday.

Dr. Maccabee attributes the strong steady growth of his practice over the years to his results and his ability to relate to his patients.

I am fortunate to have had great success helping so many people undergo in my hands a relatively painless postoperative experience and obtain a cosmetically improved appearance.

One of my passions is sculpture. I feel this provides me better perspective and increases my technical awareness.

My goal is to continue to give my patients the best surgical care with the least amount of fear and the most comfortable postoperative course.
